HotelTonight – Bakersfield Hotels

When I drive through California for work up or down Interstate 5, which is quite often, I have basically learned to put myself on the proverbial autopilot setting as soon as I get into the part of the drive that's known as The Grapevine. It's actually a lovely rural area, but it's just that – rural, and you see the same pleasing, farming-style landscape for hours at a time. I've driven this route perhaps 100 times, and I've never stopped in this part of California for anything more than a tank of gas or some quick fast food for lunch. Recently, I began to wonder if that was the right way to approach this part of my general routine. I got to answer that question recently when I got a call on my way southward that my meetings in San Diego the next day had been canceled. Suddenly, I had 24 hours to myself to do with as I pleased. I wanted to check out one of these Grapevine communities, so I stopped in Bakersfield. I wasn't concerned about finding a place to stay, either, as I travel with HotelTonight. I'd book a Bakersfield hotel room as soon as I needed one.

The Agriculture

Bakersfield feels like one of those old-time county seat towns that sit in the middle of farm country. That's likely because Bakersfield sits in the middle of farm country. When I got to town, I saw several different local produce markets around, and I stopped in to munch on a few things. Yes, they had grapes, but they also had dates, almonds and several other types of fruit that were incredibly delicious. A large portion of the food in the United States is grown in this region, and I understood why after a few samples and snacks.

The Park

It gets hot in Bakersfield during the summer, when I was there. As such, the powers-that-be in the city have tried to put plans together to help people enjoy the outdoors while protecting them from the sun. There is a new park there that I wanted to check out, and I drove over to get out and do some walking. There were two very nice ponds there and a lot of young trees that were already providing a nice degree of shade. I walked, took some photos and talked to some people about where to go for dinner.

The Dining

A couple at the park told me about a place that served chorizo bread that was to die for. Intrigued, I ate there. I ordered the recommended dish, and it looks like a deep-fried sandwich. It was also delicious. The bread was soft on the inside, and the chorizo and potatoes that filled it in were a perfect compliment both in flavor and in texture.
